Santa

Remember, Santa: Fiber is filling and a super nutrient. If Santa eats snacks high in fiber he will stay healthy and feel full. He'll also be less likely to snack on too many leftover candy canes and chocolates.

A snack high in fiber would be food with more than 2 grams of fiber per serving.

Santa can figure out how many grams of fiber are in foods by looking at the nutrition facts label.

Fruits and vegetables are fantastic sources of fiber as are foods made from whole grains.

Santa, we think you should consider the following energy-boosting treats:

  • Fresh fruits & veggies
